Описание

From New York Times bestselling author Alice Clayton, the first in a brand-new romance series telling the humorously sexy tale of Roxie, a private chef who gets a taste of love-but is it to stay, or to go?

After losing almost all of her clients in one fell swoop following an accident involving whipped cream, private chef to Hollywood's elite Roxie Callahan gets a call from her flighty mother, saying she's needed home in upstate New York to run the family diner. Once she's back in the Hudson Valley, local organic farmer Leo delivers Roxie a lovely bunch of walnuts, and soon sparks-and clothing-begin to fly. Leo believes that everything worth doing is worth doing slowly…and how! But will Roxie stay upstate, or will the lure of West Coast redemption tempt her back to Tinseltown?

    SummaryRoxie Callahan can't believe that she lost her job over "butter" of all things and lost all of her clients in LA, because of one client who screwed her over with all of her other clients. Now she is out of a job, and even though her mother needs her home, the last thing that Roxie wants to do is come back to that small town. But without a job, and living in California she knows that she will have to do it. So she reluctantly agrees to stay for the summer to take over her mother's diner. And she literally bumps in a sexy farmer with the most brilliant green eyes she has ever seen before. As Roxie keeps bumping and stumbling over farmer Leo, chemistry is fiery hot. Their fling is only for the summer they both say, but very quickly what was a summer fling turns into something more, but will secrets and misunderstandings be what keeps them apart or bring them together?The HeroLeo, is a organic farmer and for years has been cultivating the land. But Leo wasn't always a farmer. He was raised in a entitled family in Manhattan, he could have had everything he ever wanted, but he was betrayed and even though he gained something important to him, he wanted out of that city life and decided to build something important on his family's land that had been run down at the time. Leo is one sexy farmer. He is kind and sweet with kids, he makes time for everyone no matter how busy he gets. Leo is one of those characters that is a keeper and has such a nice personality. I don't get to read nice heroes like this and I love him. He enjoys life to the fullest and you have to admire that nothing gets him down for long.The HeroineRoxie Callahan, may have grown up in Hudson Valley, but she got out as soon as she possibly could. She was terribly shy and when she graduated she wanted to be confident and make something out of herself. So she got herself in one of the top culinary schools and became a professional chef. Roxie has never had a serious relationship, she has stuck with one night stands. After seeing her mother go through too many boyfriends and call it "love" Roxie knew that life could never be for her. Roxie is quirky, clumsy, talented at cooking, and gets tongue tied around handsome farmers with green eyes. And I loved her character so very much. She is who she is and not ashamed of it. I like that she goes full speed ahead on many things.Plot and Story LineI had NO idea what to expect from Nuts to be honest. But ever since I first read Clayton a few weeks ago, I have been itching to try her out again and boy Nuts won me over pretty quickly. Now I will admit, the beginning was a bit slow with all the cooking and fancy details that we get thrown at. But it was cute and funny and quickly won me over the moment that our heroine enters her hometown and she meets her farmer. Now these two were simply hilarious and I couldn't stop laughing at so many fun antics especially their first few meetings. The romance starts as a summer fling, just wanting to enjoy each other for a short time but there is definitely something going on more than just sex here. He kissed me hot...And he kissed me wet. And he kissed me . . . slow. Agonizingly, maddeningly, painfully slow. I loved kissing. I also loved what it usually led to, but I was especially loving this part with Leo. The beginning, when everything is new and exciting, and everything in the entire world boils down to sweet feathering lips and quiet sighs. When the stars fade and the earth ceases to turn, its axis forgotten in the wake of things like: which way will you lean and which way will my neck naturally turn, and is it possible that I can actually detect your fingerprints, because my skin seems so alive right now and my nose just brushed yours and the tiny groan that just rumbled from deep in your chest is the most erotic sound imaginable But boy Clayton really packs a punch with all the feels here. We get a great introduction into this charming farming valley and townfolk. And I love the gossip mills that go around here. This is a story that will captive you from the beginning, I love the humor, fun and silly moments, the chemistry that sizzles and plenty of change and growth to go around. Definitely gotta try out the next book. And another great plus to this story is how informative it is in getting the reader familiar with "farmer markets", you definitely learn quite a bit about farming and I always love learning new things.The CoverLOVE the cover we have here, and the lettering is done very dynamically. Much love here.Overall ViewNuts is a quaint and warm romance that will stun you and keep you from putting it down. Plenty of silly times, mouthwatering smexy scenes and a love story to steal your heart!! A story you don't want to miss out on. Get ready to laugh your socks off!! TANTALIZINGBooks N Tunes Pick #1: Summer Nights by GreaseNow from the beginning, the first line of this song is put in the book and you feel it through the whole thing so I just had to put this one on.

    This was a new author for me. I was seeking out something new to read. The book went very smoothly and quickly. The story was really not one I would choose to read often because it was pure entertainment and fluffy. I might choose to read this author again if I want a simple story.

    I love Alice Clayton books. They are laugh-out-loud funny and bawdy and just fun to read.Roxie Callahan left her small town in New York state behind years ago for the bright lights of L.A., but is forced to return to help out her mother. Roxie is a chef and working in her mother's diner is not what she had planned for her career.That is until she meets local farmer Leo Maxwell. Roxie wants to make this a summer fling, but she becomes more involved than she wanted, both with Leo and the town.The first half of the book was a little rough for me (I thought it could use some better editing), but by the second half I was fully on board with Roxie and Leo. They are an engaging couple and it was fun to follow their stories. This is the first in a series set in the Hudson Valley region of New York and I'm looking forward to the next books.

    I love the entire storyline, fantastic. I wish we would have had Farmer boy's perspective from the start.

    As a teenager, our hometowns are often not what they are cracked up to be. Or at least in our minds. As the saying goes, the grass is always greener. Roxie has that opportunity to hop the fence and find out if the grass is truly greener. However, Mistress Fate has other plans that sends Roxie back to her 'dreaded' hometown and smack dab into the handsome crotch of an organic farmer.

    'I smiled. "But you still want to lick my honey, don't you?" '

    I love Alice Clayton's writing style. Her dialogue is witty. Her characters are layered and flawed. And always, always humorous. So why the 3.5 stars? Well, I battled with how to write this review. If I wrote the review on the last 53% of the novel, it would have been 5 scorching stars. Leo and Roxie - between the dialogue and situations - my Kindle was on overheat or sore from laughing. But a review is on the entire novel. The first 47% would have been 2 boring stars. Ms. Clayton gives you wonderful background and you fall in love with the scenery of the Hudson Valley with her vivid descriptions. But, I felt the storyline was mired a bit in the valley at the start. Like I said, I love Ms Clayton's writing. The words of other authors "You're not going to love everything I write" rings in my ears. So, there you go.

    If you are a huge fan of her books, this is a read that you may enjoy. If you find the pace slow at the start, wait for it at 53%. If you've never read her book, this may be a good starter. Because for me, it just gets better in the others.

    #Leo #Roxie I really enjoyed this book! Absolutely lived the narrator! Story was so sweet and romantic! Surprises here and there that I didn’t expect, but loved! Highly recommended!!! Love Love Love

    Not Very Bright Protagonist who killed a bumblebee without remorse is not worth the waste of time to listen to the rest of the book. Ironically one of the settings is a presumably organic farm. Killing a probably endangered pollinator is too stupid.

    Nuts by Alice ClaytonBook #1: Hudson Valley SeriesSource: PurchaseMy Rating: 4½/5 starsMy Review:Roxie Callahan is living the dream! She doesn’t live near her flakey and totally unreliable mother, she has a sweet job as a high-end personal chef, and when she wants a little temporary loving, she has no problem finding a willing playmate. Living. The. Dream.Dreams die and Roxie’s dreams all come crashing down in the blink of eye when her aforementioned flakey and totally unreliable mother once again needs Roxie to bail her out. Roxie left her hometown for a variety of reasons including but not limited to her flakey and totally unreliable mother, her need to reinvent herself as something other than Trudy Callahan’s daughter, and her desperate need to do something other than run the family diner. As it turns out, Trudy’s phone call tanked Roxie’s budding business (BUTTER!!) and left with her with no choice but to pack her bags and head back to the Hudson Valley to bail out her mother and run the family diner. But. Only. For. The. Summer.After days of travel, Roxie finds herself back home in her twin bed with a totally unorganized and seriously out of date diner to run. Callahan’s has been a part of the community for decades and Roxie doesn’t want to change everything but she does want to liven things up a bit. Her culinary training kick in and before long, Roxie is sprucing up the place and reinvigorating the locals’ taste buds. But Roxie isn’t a one-woman show and her delightful delicacies wouldn’t be nearly so delightful without the homegrown produce brought to her courtesy of Maxwell Farms. Oh, Leo Maxwell. Leo is some sort of man and with a deadline on her stay back home, he is just the sort of man Roxie is looking for to engage in a little summer lovin’. The chemistry between Roxie and Leo is off the effing charts and, so with eyes wide open they dive into a mutually satisfying fling. And by mutually satisfying I totally mean multi-orgasmic and smoking hot. Roxie and Leo just can’t seem to get enough of each other and it becomes apparent to both that their summer fling may have what it takes to go the distance. Except, Roxie has no intention of staying in town (as she keeps telling everyone who will listen!) and Leo has a secret he just hasn’t seen fit to share. Turns out, just when Roxie begins to let down her guard and rethink her decision to run screaming from her hometown at the end of the summer, Leo’s secret speaks for herself and turns everything ass over tea kettle. The Bottom Line: I am a HUGE fan of Alice Clayton’s Cocktail series and wasn’t sure she would be able to match the awesome that is that series. I am pleased to say, I was totally and completely mistaken Nuts is a truly fantastic read with loads of dirty humor (my favorite), loads of naughty bits (also my favorite), a small town that is full of colorful and crazy personalities (my favorite), and a plot that has so much weirdness I couldn’t help but love it. My only dislike in this read is Trudy Callahan and I found myself cringing every single time I had to read a scene with her. If Trudy was talking, I was cranky. Other than the detestable Trudy Callahan, I was a smitten kitten with every aspect of this read. Even if you don’t like cooking, Clayton has made it fun, funny, sexy, sweet, and totally engaging. She also, in very Clayton-like fashion has set up the second read in the series, Cream, which is due in mid-2016.
